Baseball season is officially underway! Here's where to pull up a bar stool in New York City for all the action.
1. Lansdowne Road (599 10th Avenue)
The TVs are spaced about 10 feet apart behind the long bar so you won’t miss a thing, while the attentive bartenders will keep you topped off between innings.
This Hell’s Kitchen bar is even decorated like a stadium with indoor floodlights, but you won’t find a beer tower like this one at any ballpark.
2. Keg & Lantern (95 Nassau Avenue - Brooklyn)
The 32 beers on tap are all served imperial style (20 oz.) at the classic indoor sports bar and airy outdoor patio with picnic benches.
The menu also shows that Greenpoint’s sports crowd demands more than ambiguous fried things, with options like short rib and cheddar fries and a quinoa veggie burger in addition to the usual pub fare.
3. Mulholland's (312 Grand Street - Brooklyn)
It’s got a fireplace, but that doesn’t mean this Williamsburg bar thinks its crowd wants to talk philosophy over its beers.
A dozen TVs, cheap drinks and the combo of buffalo wings and waffle fries will make for a well-spent afternoon.
4. Foley’s (18 West 33rd Street)
If the game is baseball, this is the place.
Stacks of jerseys, signed balls and bobble heads cover everything; the waitresses are on point and the crowd is friendly even when packed in for a game.
Their huge beer selection has lots of local and craft brews, in sizes from a half pint (10 oz.) to a “personal pitcher” (32 oz.).
5. Blondies (212 West 79th Street)

The two-for-one Monday-Friday drink special should come in handy, and best enjoyed washing down some of the city’s best buffalo wings.
Expect a full house on game day, but plenty of seating makes this Upper West Side spot a great option for not ending the night with sore feet and wasting half the game trying to catch the bartender’s eye.
